Whitefly Control In Florida 


South Florida Ficus Whitefly Control

Many homes in Palm Beach, Broward, Miami Dade, Martin, St. Lucie, and Indian River counties are surrounded by ficus hedges and palm trees. When properly maintained, ficus in the area are thick and beautiful, making them the perfect privacy hedge. When whiteflies attack, they rapidly defoliate ficus hedges and remove the privacy you once had.

At Native Pest Management, we are ficus whitefly and palm tree spiral whitefly experts and believe that our proven method of controlling and preventing whiteflies will eliminate them on your trees and shrubs for good, guaranteed.

Call (888) 903-2304 to reach the best pest control company in your area today and schedule a free inspection at your property.


What Are Whiteflies?

Currently, there are various species of whiteflies in West Palm Beach and surrounding areas, with all of the species falling into two major categories: B-biotype and Q-biotype.

Why are whiteflies such an issue here in the West Palm Beach area? Compared with other pests that plague ornamental plants in the South Florida area, the whitefly is much more difficult to control. The primary reason is the large number of ficus and palm trees in the area that have provided an abundant food source for whiteflies.

Ficus Whitefly Control

As a resident of South Florida, you have seen the damage caused by ficus whiteflies. Throughout South Florida, ficus hedges have been decimated by this insect, turning what were intended to be nature’s privacy walls into see-through chain link fences.

Whiteflies suck nutrients from plants which causes wilting, defoliation and branch dieback. The areas we have seen the most ficus whitefly damage include West Palm Beach, Wellington, Jupiter, Delray Beach, Boca Raton and down to Fort Lauderdale, Weston, and Miami.

After treating hundreds of properties for whiteflies, we have also seen more damage occur closer to the ocean, which we have determined is likely due to higher Ph soil making ficus and palms more susceptible to stress and damage.

The good news is that your damaged hedges will very likely recover and thrive with a proper whitefly treatment program combined with our high quality fertilization program. Following University of Florida treatment guidelines, we at Native Pest Management focus on preventing ficus whitefly with a systemic product regularly applied to the roots of your ficus trees and hedges.

Following this quarterly application, the insecticide is absorbed through transpiration into the ficus leaves, eliminating the ability of whiteflies to feed on or lay eggs on the plant material. In addition to protecting your ficus from damage, our targeted treatment methods protect beneficial insects that prey on whiteflies, further enhancing the overall health of your landscape by encouraging biological control methods.

Coconut Palm Tree Whitefly - Rugose Spiraling Whitefly

The easiest way to determine if you have whiteflies on your coconut palm trees or whiteflies on your gumbo limbo trees is to walk outside and look on the underside of the palm fronds and plant leaves. If spiral whiteflies are present, you will see a white, waxy material covering the fronds and leaves. 

If you have a pool, it may look like there is snow in the water and the pool may turn green as whiteflies and their honeydew secretions deplete the chlorine. If your pool is currently suffering from the effects of whiteflies, we recommend an immediate application of systemic insecticides to all host trees and plants in the area.

Applying phosphate removal treatments to your pool will also help prevent discoloration from whiteflies.
